Dear Researchers and Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue of Limnological Review "Toxic metals and metalloids in aquatic environment: still a current problem?". The issue is scheduled to be published in 2018. The deadline for submission is April 2018. All manuscript should be submitted through our online submission system and should follow instructions for authors.

 

The issue will be published in Open Access on DeGruyter platform. There will be no charges for Authors.

This Special Issue of Limnological Review will cover all recent discoveries related to the presence of toxic metals and metalloids (e.g. aluminum, lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, zinc, manganese, iron, copper, rare-earth elements, platinum group elements) in surface waters and groundwaters, their environmental fate, potential ecological and health impacts, and removal methods.

Specifically, the submissions - original and review papers - should deal with one of the following subjects:

  • concentrations of toxic metals and metalloids in aquatic environment their potential correlations with abiotic factors
  • speciation analyses of toxic metals and metalloids in aquatic environment
  • sources of toxic metals and metalloids in aquatic environment, particularly related to human-activities
  • bioaccumulation of toxic metals and metalloids in aquatic fauna and flora
  • biomagnification of toxic metals and metalloids in aquatic food web
  • the effects of toxic metals and metalloids on aquatic biota, including experimental in vivo and in vitro data
  • the assessment of human health risks arising from the presence of toxic metals and metalloids in surface and groundwater
  • methods to efficiently decrease concentrations of toxic metals and metalloids in water

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts will be refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.

 

We are awaiting your submissions!
